What is life like in Sweden? "The politicians are participating in a chicken race of “goodness” where everybody tries to one-up each other in caring for the citizens of OTHER countries while Swedish retirees, school children, handicapped and other vulnerable categories of people are thorougly ignored."

Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media (1992) is a documentary film that explores the political life and ideas of Noam Chomsky, a linguist, intellectual, and political activist. Created by two Canadian filmmakers, Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick, it expands on the ideas of Chomsky's earlier book, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, which he co-wrote with Edward S. Herman.

Here is a great documentary about Lust. Should give you some insight about the differences in males and females.

Very good, but short documentary on Ny's black out of '77, and the role urban decay caused in making it so much worse -

Interesting short documentary on Compstat policing, and the subsequent troubles that come with it both for citizens and police-

http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=13208004 .

Interesting that ESPN would have a hand in the film. If you like to know more, The Village Voice did a whole series of articles on Ny's troubles with it a few years back, just google search the topic.

Leonard Cohen commented from the Mt Baldy Zen Center, his home at that time: The monks up here think it's pretty good. Roshi said to her: "You great artist"

The film describes the daily routines of the Zen monks at the Zen Center of Mt. Baldy: waking up early (2:30 or 3:00 am), marching together to the ceremonies, meditating, making food and eating. We see Cohen working in the kitchen and helping his dear friend and teacher Joshu Sasaki Roshi (90 years at the time of shooting); later he drives with Roshi to another Zen Center (Rinzai Ji) in Los Angeles.

Cohen's cabin with his Technics KN 3000 synthesizer and computers are shown, and he sings his new song A thousand kisses deep. He also recites three unpublished poems, two telling about Roshi (one titled Roshi at 89) . The third was titled Too old.

LOL, yeah a lot of concrete, lots of traffic and a few serious woods, just way too many people per square mile Undecided
I guess you mean the Bulldog 'coffee' shop, tourists love that place for a good reason Grin

Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers (2006)- The New York Times called it “a horrifying catalog of greed, corruption and incompetence among private contractors in Iraq... [the film is] extremely effective.”

Yes, but we call them coffee shops, since they aren't allowed to serve alcohol like cafes. It's the marijuana that separates them from coffeehouses.

Some good ones I've seen lately:

The Jinx - The Robert Durst murders, extremely fascinating and just goes to show you that if you have enough money, you can do whatever the fuck you want, even kill people, chop up their bodies, claim self defense, and dump them in the ocean and get away with it.

Merchants of Doubt - an excellent look into the disinformation tactics of big tobacco, fossil fuel companies, and climate change deniers.  Really opens your eyes to how much bullshit is being spewed to the public.

That Sugar Film - an Australian guy, after being completely off sugar intake in his diet for 2 years, goes on a 60 day diet taking in the average daily consumption of sugar like most other Australians.  He goes from being in the top 10% of healthy males of his age, to the bottom 20% in 2 months, becomes pre-diabetic and develops fatty liver disease, all by eating so called low fat "health foods".

Montage of Heck - an intimate look into the life of Kurt Cobain and his girl of a wife Courtney, lots of home movies and personal recordings of Kurt.

Soaked in Bleach - a look into the murder of Kurt Cobain and the allegations of the PI that was hired by his wife that she had him killed.  Not sure what to think about it, but it was interesting nonetheless.

I also recently watched "Paradise Lost: Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills"  which was a doc done by HBO at the time of the trial of the infamous Memphis 3.  A great follow up after watching that is "West of Memphis" was done in 2012 recapping the entire story of the 3 and their exoneration.  It was a really fucked up trial, how they got convicted on the evidence laid out is mind boggling if you aren't from that part of the country, but quite unsurprising if you are.
